Dear Nick and Angelo
I would like to take this opportunity to write a testimonial/reference for APT Construction Group Proprietary Limited who I engaged to undertake renovations of my home.
APT was recommended to me and was very highly spoken of in their professionalism, quality, advice and expertise. Also, they are a one stop shop from the very start of conception to providing drafting, plans, guidance right through from start to the finalisation of the construction.
I have never undertaken a renovation of a house of this scale and during the entire process I was treated with the utmost respect, and kept well informed at all times during the entire project which was on a massive scale. The entire house internally was gutted and our plans put into action in creating a renovated home.
Nothing was too much trouble in explaining in detail what could be expected. Any variations for whatever reason or for any problems I was contacted immediately and was discussed thoroughly, giving me all the options of how best to implement taking into consideration the costs. Any questions or queries I had they were only too willing to listen, providing expert advice and guidance.
I really looked forward to our onsite meetings once a week with Nick who took me through explaining where we were at. Watching my house come back together with the expertise, guidance I received was above and beyond what I expected, which is what I was told when referred to APT and they certainly lived up to the recommendation, if not more.
Their respect for the building regulations, local laws, and occupational health and safety was well demonstrated and enforced at all times. This is of peace of mind for me as the owner of the property I certainly would not have to deal with any issues arising as such I didn’t.
The Kitchen was quite adventurous as we decided that the bench tops and cupboards would be made from recycled wood. This was achieved with the help of Nick and Angelo who went beyond what was required and dealt with the service provider who undertook the work, again this was really appreciated but also made my dream kitchen come to fruition. Now completed, it is even better than we imagined, it is magnificent. Also, feedback from the service provider who made and installed the bench tops and cupboards made from recycled wood regarding the cutting, assembly and installation of carcass was so precise and accurate.
Friends and family who saw the before and the completed renovations have commented that it is tasteful and very welcoming.
APT took into consideration my taste, what I wanted to achieve and provided advice as to how to achieve it. They also provided information as to what should be done now and what could be done later but also ensured that I kept costs in mind. This is a big factor especially with an older house where variations or the unexpected needs to be taken into account.
I was working fulltime, had another house on the market for sale and undertook this project all at once. With the engagement of APT I had confidence in the management of this renovation that I could work fulltime; manage another house for sale with full confidence.
With regards to payments when they are due, providing invoices plenty of notice and so efficient in providing receipts. Their office management is well organised, also whenever I telephoned they were willing to assist with any query regardless of how small or big.
We are about to embark on our next project with APT in demolishing a reconstruction of a new garage which we are so looking forward to as the expertise, professionalism and guidance once again I look forward to.
